in -- marking the anniversary at the vigil in union square park here in new york city. tonight's vigil is just one of a dozen of million hoodie marches held over the past year mourning trayvon's death and demanding change. trayvon's parents became political activists after their son's death because police refused to arrest the gunman right away under florida's stand-your-ground statute. neighborhood watch volunteer george zimmerman claims trayvon attacked him so he shot trayvon in self-defense. the police eventually arrested zimmerman and released these pictures nine months after trayvon's death. the pictures show cuts on zimmerman's face and on the back of his head the night of the shooting. but there are also recordings of zimmerman before the shooting telling police trayvon looked like he was up to no good, or on drugs or something. trayvon was not armed and was killed just 70 feet away from his stepmother's town house. a 911 dispatcher asked zimmerman to wait until police arrived before approaching trayvon, and prosecutors claim zimmerman's profiled martin. zimmerman has plea
